In 1965, the United States Federal government authorized thesecret Code of Emergency Federal Regulations (CEFR), fearingthat a nationwide crisis may arise as a result of theescalating Cold War with then-Communist States. Thedirectives outlined by the CEFR were established to allowpost-disaster governance of the United States. Its statedgoal was "to provide continuity in the publication ofFederal statutes and regulations during a condition of enemyattack or threatened attack" (i). To underscore itsimportance, the writers claim that "by centralizing stand-byemergency measures in one official publication, the CEFRmakes available information that is essential to coordinatedaction and planning by all agencies having responsibilitiesin this area" (i).
